Bonham Carter loves bizarre gossip about her life

The actress and her longterm partner famously live in separate houses next door to each other in London, and she admits their domestic set-up has sparked a reputation they live in an “Alice in Wonderland”-style fantasy world.

But she is adamant the couple is happy fans and critics spread strange rumours about their relationship – because it keeps an air of mystery hanging over them.

Bonham Carter tells Total Film magazine, “(People) think we’re the Addams Family! But do you know what? I think all that is rather marvellous. The more myths that follow you, it’s a more protective shell around you. You’ve got to keep the truth private – so the more c**p they write and the more sensational it is, the further it is from the truth. It’s a sort of shell of bulls**t.”
